Nokia suing Apple over patent infringement

This sounds like pretty big news to me – Nokia are claiming that Apple have infringed on their intellectual property and could be liable for a license agreement settlement for every iPhone model since the iPhone was introduced in 2007.

The ten patents in suit relate to technologies fundamental to making devices which are compatible with one or more of the GSM, UMTS (3G WCDMA) and wireless LAN standards. The patents cover wireless data, speech coding, security and encryption and are infringed by all Apple iPhone models shipped since the iPhone was introduced in 2007.
